Hello, I am trying to figure out and debug one process for the memory leaking.. I have seen the usage of a process keeps increasing from 15MB to 1050MB in 7 days.. though the process is idle and there is no usage. Could someone point me on how to proceed in order to troubleshoot the memory leaking? Thanks!

You can use "prstat -a" command to see how much memory is used by all processes.

you can use truss -f -p <pid_of_process> to see what it is doing.

Have you tried looking at the process with dtrace? Maybe this blog can help you a bit further: http://blogs.sun.com/chrisg/entry/using_dtrace_to_track_down
